The Graduate Program in Spanish at the University of Alabama, housed within the Department of Modern Languages and Classics, invites applications for graduate study in Spanish Linguistics at the MA and PhD levels for the upcoming 2021-2022 academic year.

Our faculty specialize and teach courses in a variety of areas, including bilingualism, code-switching, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, and phonetics. We also offer training in teaching methods, with a specific focus on Spanish, as well as other introductory courses in Spanish linguistics, history of the Spanish language, and quantitative research methods.

Financial support is available in the form of a Graduate Teaching Assistantship, which includes full tuition, a monthly stipend, and health insurance. The stipend for this past academic year 20/21 was $6863 per semester. Additional funding opportunities may be available for recruitment of exceptional applicants. Students also may receive support for conference travel.

Applications to the program are considered on an on-going basis. For priority consideration for an assistantship, applications should be submitted by February 1, 2021 for the upcoming academic year.
